Guess what? It's St. Patrick's Day. And I don't need a calendar to know it because this is the day when my train into New York City is louder than usual and I hear guys screaming "Alcohol is not an excuse" quickly followed by "Shut up, Murphy!"
In honor of St. Paddy, here's a breakdown of the first round of the NCAA tournament in the South -- including the Irish -- and Midwest regionals from the wise guy perspective, starring sports bettors Alan Boston in the South and Sal Selvaggio from madduxsports.com in the Midwest.
If you missed it on Tuesday, check out the wise guy bracket breakdown of the East and West regionals here.
To read what Sal and Alan say about the Midwest and South regionals of the NCAA tournament from both pick and against-the-spread perspectives, you must be an ESPN Insider.
